The tide is in and a small fishing boat is out at sea, while the bright morning sunshine lights the cliffs.

Flamborough Head, Yorkshire:
North Landing, early morning

Now this is one of my favourite places: Flamborough Head. I intend to paint here a lot because I know the site well and know where there are views to paint. It's also reasonably easy to access. Though I'm waiting for a lighter plein air painting box to arrive before I attempt to haul my painting kit down into the coves.

This was very early one morning at North Landing. I was intent on getting a lot of plein air painting done that day, so set off before the sun was up and arrived by 6:30am. Though the light was bright, there was a bit much cloud about. However, there was a very particular warm early morning light illuminating the cliffs and adding an interesting nuance to the surface of the sea. Worth the early rise.
